Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2012
0.33 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Almost black dark reddish brown color. Vinous raisiny and coffeish aroma with raspberry. Roasty and burnt flavor with coffee and burnt raspberry. Dry roasty and bitter finish. Good vinous stout, a bit acrid but it does not bother in small quantities.

Beermack (712) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 1, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours jet black with bubbly tan head - heavy lacing. Aroma is heavily roasted malt, dark roasted coffee beans, cacao, slight booze note. Taste is primarily deep roasted malt, bitter coffee, slight dark fruit notes. Full mouthfeel, but slightly coarse. Aftertaste is roasted, bitter, and very dry. One of the Porterhouse's best offerings.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle from Super Best. It poors black and oily with a medium foamy brown head, disappearing fast. Powerfull roasted aroma, chocolate malt, sleight fruity alchohol, nice. Very bitter roasted flavor, dry ashyness, hop bitterness aswell. Not too complex, but quite a bitterbomb.

fiulijn (16003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Draught at The Wharf, Aalborg, as Porterhouse Anglo-Irish Imperial Stout
Black color with brown head. Mild aroma of roasted malt and some cardboard, light cheese. Medium body structure, big roasted malt flavor, ashes, some dark chocolate, salty, with strong bitterness. Maybe too aggressive on the roasty side.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Pours thick and black with a big brown head. Nose is chocolate, oatmeal, coffee and bits of pine and hay. Taste is complex, starts mellow bitter, transitions to sweet for a moment and then packs a bitter punch on the finish. The palate loves the feel here. Smooth and creamy at first, but turns crisp and fizzy in the end, long aftertaste, big body. This is a good one.

RichardGretton (4379) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2012
Bottle. Pitch black beer with a light brown strongish head. The aroma is malty and strongly roasted coffee bean, and the flavour is bitter and fairly strongly roasted. Overall a nice strongly flavoured roasted coffee bean flavoured bitter stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vertical with BA version
Aroma has lots of floury cocoa and some coffee notes. Also hints of vanilla. Flavour is malty with cocoa and some roasted coffee. Dry stuff, worse than the BA version.
